We have a number of opportunities for volunteers to provide services in the hospital as well as working behind the scenes of the charity. 

An overview of current services is included in this Application Pack.

Our recruitment process requires us to undertake a DBS Check which is required for both volunteers working in the hospital or as a trustee.

What happens next?

On receipt of your application, we will take up your references and contact you to discuss next steps which will include booking you onto an Induction training session and conducting a risk assessment for your protection.

The services we offer and the current vacancies will be discussed at the Induction Sessions.
